The NHL roundup …
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Jason Pominville scored on a power play 56 seconds into overtime to lift Buffalo past Carolina 3-2
Thomas Vanek and Tyler Myers also scored to help the Sabres (31-28-8) jump into a tie with Washington for ninth place in the Eastern Conference. Ryan Miller stopped 22 shots, Pominville and Vanek also had assists, and the Sabres outshot the Hurricanes 42-24.
Pominville converted in overtime after Bryan Allen was sent off for hooking with 55 seconds left in regulation. Parked atop the left circle, Pominville took a pass from Christian Ehrhoff and blasted it inside the far post. Goalie Cam Ward appeared to be screened by defenseman Jay Harrison.
Jaroslav Spacek and Chad LaRose scored for Carolina.
PENGUINS 3, LEAFS 2
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pascal Dupuis scored twice and had an assist, and the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied to beat the slumping Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 on Wednesday night for their seventh straight victory.
Jordan Staal added a goal and an assist to extend his points streak to a career-best six games and rookie Brad Thiessen stopped 22 shots.
The Penguins started the day by unveiling a statue honoring Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux outside Consol Energy Center. The three-time MVP, now the team owner, watched from his box as Pittsburgh won for the 11th time in its last 12 home games to strengthen its hold on fourth-place in the Eastern Conference.
Phil Kessel and Carl Gunnarsson scored for Toronto. The Maple Leafs let an early two-goal lead slip away while falling to 1-2 since Randy Carlyle took over as coach following Ron Wilson’s firing.
The Maple Leafs have lost six of seven and are five points behind eighth-place Winnipeg.
